I Just Ate My Friend

I Just Ate My Friend

Illustrated by: Heidi McKinnon
For Ages: 4 - 8
A creature has eaten his friend. Now he’s on a journey to find a new one with hilarious consequences in this bright, subversive debut picture book.

A little creature is looking for a new friend, but he’s not having any luck.

Why is he looking for a new friend, you ask?

Because he ate his old one!

Heidi McKinnon delivers a hilariously macabre story with colorful illustrations and a satisfying, dry wit.
